7:05am
perspective. now they've theoretically lost two children. it's a double tragic. from a school district perspective, it carries on a different light because we're still dealing with the loss of leila and now we're having to grapple with this reality. >> reporter: the superintendent told me this boy didn't get into trouble and teachers never saw any behavior that caused them concern. under california law, the boy cannot be charged for murder. i've put in calls to the sheriff's office trying to find out when charges may be filed against this boy and when he may make his first appearance in front of a judge. we're live in calaveras county, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> you can always get the latest information about this case by going to our channel 2 website, ktvu.com. just click on the calaveras slaying tab. a man is behind bars after

7:12am
the sacramento kings to seattle. the nba board of governors meets in dallas. this week. they will vote on that plan. right now, seattle may have the edge. last week an investment group from seattle raise the bid $100,000 more from the sacramento-based group fighting to keep the team in that city. 7:11. san francisco mayor ed lee will meet with members of the bay area's super bowl committee at noon and they will review their final bid in the bay area's effort to host super bowl l at the 49ers' new stadium in santa clara. next week, nfl owners will decide if the bay area or miami will host the 2016 super bowl. and the bay area is now considered the front-runner after state lawmakers in florida rejected the nfl's demand to fix up the aging home of the miami dolphins. that would be really cool, 7:12. e super

7:18am
they did the targeting based on their politics but now we know that wasn't true. in fact, a year earlier, higherups at the irs were made aware of these groups. in the summer of 2011, the irs took it a step further, flagging groups that criticized how the government was running the runt and educated people -- running the country and educated people. jay carney called this irs move wrong. but some in congress want president obama to personally address and condemn the irs and we expect to hear from president obama next hour. he's scheduled to have a press conference at 8:15 pacific. live in washington, kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:18. president obama is welcoming british prime minister david cameron to the white house to discuss the civil war in syria,

7:33am
times." governor brown says he's still assess egg the situation. last week a geologist and a representative from feinstein's office went to look at the problem. so far, no one knows what is causing it. a memorial service will be held tonight in florida for a bay area man who died just days after graduating from college. he died earlier yesterday morning after the car he was a passenger in crashed near miami. he had just graduated friday from the university of miami with a degree in business administration. he was getting ready to join his family's business. galotti construction is a company in santa rosa, it's been around for a hundred years. the investigation into the crash continues. one of five nurses killed in the limo fire on the san mateo bridge will be laid to rest today. the funeral for anna alkantara will be held today. lawmakers are debating tougher

limousines after that deadly fire nine days ago. they include requiring yearly inspections for limousines and also requiring them to carry fish extinguishers. later this morning, oj simpson goes back to a los angeles courtroom. he wants a judge to overturn his 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping. simpson claims his lawyers were so bad during his trial, that his conviction should be reversed and he should get a new trial. simpson was sentenced to nine to 33 years after the las vegas hotel room robbery where simpson was trying to get back personal memorabilia that he says was stolen to him. also due in a las vegas courtroom is 27-year-old amar'e harris. he's accused of killing three people back in february in a shooting and fiery crash on the las vegas strip. this wrapper was one of the victims. he was driving a maserati when
7:35am

7:37am
parking across the street and they have to pay $4. in this lot, it's free but perhaps not for long. this fall, the golden gate bridge district may be adding parking fees but may add more ferries and bus service. it's all part of the vision plan approved last week. there's too many people who want to ride the ferry. about 100 people may end up having to jump on a backup bus to san francisco and others may choose to drive themselves. we asked people if they were charged for parking, how much they would be willing to pay. if they said it would be $5 a day would you still do it? >> i may have to find another means of transportation. that's pretty pricey. >> reporter: >> $3 is something i think. >> reporter: one woman we spoke to said adding more ferry once was a great idea. >> there's times when i get here in ten minutes, it's booked. i go to sf state and i have

7:41am
a stronger sea breeze in place. 60s to near 90 for some. a lot of 70s. low to mid-80s especially away from the coast. a lot of 60s and upper 60s. low 70s close to the bay. alameda, 65. livermore, 85. hayward is 72. we'll go 86 on gilroy. 60s on the coast. that's 60s. 67 san bruno. brisbane, san mateo, millbrae. mid-70s. burlingame in there. a little bit warmer but not much. fog will be on the increase. that means a bigger cooldown we take that to the end of the week and then a little warm other the weekend. 7:41. the warriors heading back to san antonio with their nba playoff series against the spurs now tied at two games apiece. >> curry to the basket. >> there you go!
